Various articles about ADF describe creating the user email@example.com on both ACS and APS (or, the same username on both).
My employer uses alfresco content services enterprise 5.2.1. It appears that we have an authentication chain configured with Alfresco's internal authentication subsystem (alfrescoNtlm) and LDAP-AD. I can create the user but not login as that user. Does alfrescoNtlm allow there to be user with a password that doesn't come from an external directory? If that chain should work, what else needs to be done to allow the same username to be created in both ACS and APS?
Re: Can the user firstname.lastname@example.org be created?
I would be interested to know which articles recommend the creation of that user in Alfresco Content Services. From my point of view, that user should not need to be created there under any circumstance.
If alfrescoNtlm is enabled you can create that user with a local password in Alfresco Content Services independant of external directory. There are restrictions with regards to any single sign-on feature you may have enabled, if Kerberos or NTLMv1 are enabled and passthru/kerberos are in front of alfrescoNtlm in the chain.
